The Shock Doctrine

The Bush Administration's plan to bail out our financial industry is the worst case of Carpetbagging since the aftermath of the civil war. You might say that this plan is also being put into play at the end of a 30 year, bitterly fought class war.

Win win for the Bushco crony system. A final opening of the treasury for the republican con machine to take whatever it wants. The rich get richer, and the middle class is sold into wage-slavery. Banana Republic time. It's the ultimate Southern Strategy wrapped up in Montezuma's Revenge.

Desperation breeds. Call and write your representatives in DC and tell them not to sell us out: No bailout without strong Congressional regulation and oversight.

At this rate, it could be all over even before we get a chance to clean it all up.

It is shocking, and so incredibly blatant. Look at this language from the bailout proposal:

Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.

How are we served by any of this?

It's highway robbery: if we don't cough up the money, we know the whole world will melt down. Shock Doctrine at it's ugliest. Could we have a shred of hope that the dems will take a stand on this?

I for one don't think so.
